Joint Camp: Preparing for total knee, total hip, or total shoulder surgery

These appointments are held for patients scheduled for total knee, hip, and shoulder replacement surgery. The appointment offers information on how to prepare patients and family before and after surgery, what to expect during their stay, discharge planning and needs and to encourage family involvement with pre and postoperative care for the best outcomes.

Joint Camp appointments are held on Fridays at the main campus hospital. You will be automatically scheduled for joint camp as a part of the scheduling process for a total joint replacement surgery. Your joint camp appointment will be 2-3 weeks prior to your surgery. For more information, contact your surgeon’s office.
